Some software is free, some apps are free, I understand others charge money, I think office 2003 was the last software I paid my hard earned for.

]thanks Bibs. I did search, and I looked through the help section...

And after only 40 clicks and mouse movements... Here it is (embedded, and without ads)

Oh, and on Android 3.2 stock browser set to desktop, I see no buttons, just a white text window. In the Dolphin browser I see the buttons but can't click on them, and in Android 2.3.3 on my phone, there are no buttons, and I can't click on the window to enter text... IP_Board 3.2.0 is broken...

It's a strange thing with Apple products I resisted getting an iphone3 because of all the hype but when I actually tried one in a shop I thought to myself this is just simply well thought out and have now had the iphone 4 since it came out and still think its a very good product. As a present for achieving good results in her O levels I decided to buy my daughter a Mac air book and as I was at the Apple stand thought I'd play around with the Ipad2 there are so many things it can do in relation to my business i.e taking photo's of a building survey which I can now take out the SD card from my camera and with the adaptor show the client photos which can be blown up to highlight faults and the like plus I don't need my glasses to browse the internet and send messages. The only thing that puts me off is this continual updating of models like the fact that the ipad3 will be released shortly making your new purchase seem obsolete.

The software updates with the device to a certain point, it's not all bad.

Personally however I went with an Android tablet, the Asus eee Transformer. 16 battery, tonnes of customisation and it plays flash! I went into an Apple store when the iPad first came out, went on the BBC news website and none of the video worked, that sealed the deal I wouldn't buy one.

And perhaps not so good for older folks. My mom returned hers because she found the typing too frustrating.

they are much harder to type on than a keyboard. I have the ASUS transformer, but I haven't bought the keyboard for it. I also have the Google Chrome Netbook, but I really prefer the tablet now!

I think this could be a very cool solution, which is funded through Kickstarter (here's the project page), but I wonder if Apple won't just roll out their own version with the iPad3...

Once you're used to typing on an iPhone, the iPad is a doddle.

Don't let new models put you off. As Bibs says the new software usually works on existing stuff

Well angry birds is just an iPhone app so it looks pretty shit. Unless there is an iPad version?

I am loving it so far though
